'Thrillville: Off the Rails' (ALL) - 100 New Screens

by Rainier on Sept. 20, 2007 @ 2:14 p.m. PDT

Off the Rails lives up to its name with 20 death-defying rides so outrageous, they inspire the same word from every park visitor who sees them: “WHOA!” Players build these incredible “WHOA Coasters” to leap from one track to another, launch through the air like cannonballs, blast through burning rings of fire and more. A new lighthearted story ties together more than 100 missions, complete with 34 playable multiplayer theme-park games and improved social interaction with park guests.

Off the Rails lives up to its name with 20 death-defying rides so outrageous, they inspire the same word from every park visitor who sees them: “WHOA!” Players build these incredible “WHOA Coasters” to leap from one track to another, launch through the air like cannonballs, blast through burning rings of fire and more.

A new lighthearted story ties together more than 100 missions, complete with 34 playable multiplayer theme-park games and improved social interaction with park guests. The in-depth conversations both advance the plot and suggest better ways to manage the park. But is every guest to be trusted? One never knows when a rival from the nefarious Globo-Joy might attempt to sabotage Thrillville parks with deceptive information…

Features :

  • Experience the visceral fun of interacting with a theme park you create.
  • Build and ride your own creations, talk and joke with all your guests, and play dozens of minigames.
  • Use the Wii Remote and Nintendo DS stylus in innovative ways to develop roller coasters and play minigames with the flick of your wrist.
  • Create 20 death-defying WHOA Coasters such as these:
    • Hotrod Stunt: A nitro boost propels a car across a broken track.
    • Pendulizer: A giant arm grabs the car just before a gap in the track, whips it around in a full circle, then sets it down on the other side.
    • Escape Drop: The track holds the car stationary as it lifts itself from level ground to a full 90-degree drop. Then it lets go.
  • Visit 15 themed areas, like Battleville, Winterville, Spaceville and Aeroville, all spread throughout five new parks.
  • Distinguish your rides even more with enhanced customization options. Attach animatronics, flowers and flaming hoops to all of your coasters and rides.
  • Smarter guests, better dialogue, and more focused two-way conversation make Thrillville’s socialization aspects even more amusing than before.
  • Conversation more directly impacts the story than in the original Thrillville.
  • Play 34 minigames – 14 new, 20 returning from the original Thrillville but with new levels. Examples of new minigames include the following:
    • Robo K.O.: Hit, bop and block with these boxing robots.
    • Sparkle Quest: Delightful 2D platforming action on Sparkle Island.
    • Bandito Chinchilla: A classic side-scrolling beat-‘em-up…where you’re a boxing Chihuahua!
    • Tank Frenzy: Get combative in this vertically scrolling shoot-‘em-up.
  • All minigames feature leaderboards for Xbox Live.
  • DC Studios is creating the entirely unique Nintendo DS version from the ground up to best take advantage of the handheld’s touch-screen capabilities.

Thrillville: Off the Rails is scheduled for October on X360, Wii, PS2, PSP, PC and, with the help of developer DC Studios, NDS.
